Trump & el-Sisi praise each other, promise strong support for battling terrorism

US President Donald Trump praised Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi during a meeting in the White House, saying that el-Sisi is doing “a fantastic job.” He also promoted the United States’ military buildup as “probably more than ever before.”

“We agree on so many things,” Trump said of el-Sisi during a photo-op in the Oval Office. “I just want to let everybody know, in case there was any doubt that we are very much behind President el-Sisi.”

“He’s done a fantastic job in a very difficult situation,” Trump continued. “We are very much behind Egypt and the people of Egypt, and the United States has, believe me, backing and we have strong backing.”
